? >> well, i guess the temptation is to say this is going to use up all the energy and fighting spirit of the white house but the president has four years, maybe two, maybe one before the mid terms, one after. i think that there's a legacy situation in play here and so i'm pretty sure that he is going to want to not leave huge debt and there is also a situation where what's good for him is also good in some respects for republicans. so do republicans want immigration reform before the next election? do they want to dig out of the hole they're in with hispanic voters? so there is some mutual interest. i think that gun fight is going to be very difficult but i think that's something that we're going to see, if it doesn't happen this year it may happen the next year or the year after. it is just something that i think the president will want to leave office having achieved. so nothing is going to be easy. we'll have very many brinks, you know, and a lot of fighting over principles which is not a bad thing but i think ultimately a lot of these issues will be addressed. >> david, sequestrat
and cleleads uo a path in january. the agenda set out there in energy independence, education, what they want to do can still be well addressed. i believe it dmeepends on how t next few days work out. if they can't address the fiscal cliff, there's no way they can address the grand bargain or debt ceiling. i think they are going to do it, quite frankly. >> really, a pleasure talking to you both. enjoy the new year. you are enjoying family time and keeping your eyes on the redskins. i won't say which is which. happy new year. >> office politics the lester holt now. he tells us about two stories he will never forget. also, he will talk about his love of music. you know that little 50-pound thingy at the doctor's office when they weigh you, and they have to move it over? my doctor does not have to do that anymore.

, the investments they make and the clean energy jobs they create. 2 million americans are out of work with, but out there looking and pounding the pavement every day will continue to receive unemployment benefits as long as they're actively looking for a job. i'm very open to compromise. i agree with democrats and republicans that the aging population and the rising cost of health care makes medicare the biggest contributor to our deficit. i believe we have to find ways to reform that program without hurting seniors who count on it to survive. and i believe that there's further unnecessary spending in government that we can eliminate. but we can't simply cut our way to prosperity. i will not have another debate with this congress over whether or not they should pay the bills that they have already wracked up through the laws they passed. let me repeat. we can't not pay bills that we've already incurred. if congress refuses to give the united states government time to pay these bills on time, the result will be catastrophic. hopefully we will focus on seeing if we can put a package like this togethe
time an energy devoted to the fiscal cliff, there were other big issues on capitol hill that got put off until the new congress arrives tomorrow. that includes a bill to help those effected by superstorm sandy. a package was passed last week by the senate, now lawmaker also have to start the process from scratch because legislation does not carry over from the last congress to this new one. for those hit hardest by the storm, the frustration was bipartisan. >> this congress is apparently leaving town without responding to that emergency. there's not one of us, not one of us in this congress that could not be in the same position. and i'm deeply disappointed, mr. speaker. and the people who have been damaged by sandy, including governor christie, a republican, and governor cuomo, a democrat, should be deeply disappointed and, yes, angry. >> we have a moral obligation to hold this vote. the people are out of their homes. the people who are cold. the people without food. the people who lost their jobs. they don't have time to wait. >> to ignore it, to ignore the plight of millions of am
talked last night about energy reform, he talked about gun control, he's talked about immigration. a lot of his political capital is going to be used in the next 60 to 90 days on these budget wars. >> that's right. and these budget wars don't knowsly amount to legacy. here's a president who came in like most presidents thinking about a legacy, thinking about history. of course i think obama care will be part it haof it but i t he's looking at immigration and energy, a lot of thing he's wasn't able to do in the first term, to get them done in the second term. a lot of bad blood there between obama and the republicans but also some bad blood there between obama and the democrats. not a lot of -- i think not a lot of improvement obama has shown over he's last weeks in terms of his relationship with congress. i think that's something he certainly needs to work on if he's looking at legacy, if he's looking at these big ticket items to push them through in his second term. in a couple of months we'll have these big debates around the debt limit but quickly once 2014 comes around, we're going t

, sometimes missed that this guy had a genius-level i.q., a bundle of energy, more importantly to us -- a lot of our senior military leaders are good organizers with great energy, but this guy had a sense of strategic understanding of the battlefield, so what's discounted nowadays is that four-day ground victory for the first war, going into it we were dealing with the fourth largest army in the face of the earth that then was pulled apart by u.s. airpower, naval power, but more importantly by schwarzkopf, instead of banging away directly at the enemy and circling the whole force. he loved soldiers. he was a remarkable man, and as frequently noted, he had a temper. if you weren't taking care of soldiers or following the bouncing ball, you would understand quickly he was displeased with you. >> one thing we got to know the general by were the legendary press briefings, and at the time, you know, it was a very honest conversations being had, but in reflection, the general made it very object that he was trying to speak directly to saddam hussein. that was the audience, correct? for who he was t

this might become a big issue? >> i think fossil fuel exports has been a huge issue in the energy world for the last couple of years and finally it's rising to the level of where it's going to gain the attention of congress. the energy department released a study last month giving an implicit nod to natural gas exports. i think that could compel congress to really look at this issue. this law governing natural gas exports hasn't been updated since 1938. whether or not congress has the political will to change it remains to be seen but it's certainly going to be part of the conversation. >> you also write about the european financial crisis. i would think it's fair to say 2012 was a horrible, terrible, very bad year for the european economy. but what could that mean to us here? >> right. i think the fiscal cliff of the past month has really allowed a lot of people and especially those in congress to forget that there's a big world out there where economies are not doing so well either. there's been a couple of economists, some of the big economic firms like deutsche bank and others who s

the administration, destroy the energy of government, and substitute the pleasure, caprice or artifices of an insignificant, turbulent, or corrupt junta to the regular deliberations and decisions of a respectable majority." but in recent years, the senate has been remade into a super majority constitution. you need 60 votes to get almost anything done. between 2009 and 2010, we had more filibusters than we had in the '50s, '60s, and '70s combined. and they're not filibusters like we think of them, where the senators go to the floor and debate an issue until they keel over from exhaustion. they're just obstruction. if you watch a filibuster today, it doesn't look like anything. it's the blue screen on c-span, the one with the classical music playing over it. you don't tune in to here an intense minority demand a great debate on the issue of the day. you tune in to hear a string quartet. senator jeff merkley, a democrat from oregon is trying to change that. he's got a proposal to force talking filibusters in the senate. it wouldn't change what i think is a central part in the senate, the

income tax credit with a college tuition tax credit or the alternative energy tax credits are things that i value and democrats value. the one piece of this puzzle that is rumored to be permanent is a patch to the so-called alternative minimum tax or amt. that would protect the middle class folks making $40,000, $50,000 range from being hit by that tax, which is really not often discussed in what i'm seeing in terms of media coverage. it is a very complex menu of things, chris, that we are debating and discussing here in the senate and the house. it is my hope that we can follow senator harken's core value which is to make sure that revenue raised is being invested in a way that protects the middle class and strengthens our economy. >> senator, let me ask you. i want to go a little bit broader. you were an executive prior to coming in the senate. you elected to the senate in 2010. you haven't been there all that long. certainly compared to everyone else there. are you surprised, amazed? what is your read-out that we are where we are on this? i'm looking at the clock. 10:47:50. the fa

much do you think the tea party has to do with it? >> well, the ptea party provide much of the energy and uncompromising demands. but ultimately, the republican party leadership in the house embraced them and acted on their what have from the very beginning of this congress, demanding immediate spending cuts at a time when the economy was still pretty shaky, and taking the unprecedented action of holding the necessary rise and the debt ceiling hostage to their own policy demands, leading to a downgrade in our dollars and the decline in the economy. so, yeah, the tea party bears responsibility. but the tea party and the republican party, sadly, have become one in the same. >> well, take us sort of micro now, that's the macro picture. take us micro into these next 29 1/2 hours and how this might play into whether or not we go off the fiscal cliff. >> yeah, listen, as you know, you've been talking to many other people up there, there's an easy way of agreeing to a small package that deals with tax cuts extending the tax cuts for most families, and an extension of expiring unemployment be

to gun control and there's been talk on energy legislation. but it looks like raising the debt ceiling is not part of the deal. that is four major political fights that the president has on his hands. what is going to get lost the longer this drags on? >> i think most of those things. look, if this drags on into the new year, this is going to be the focus up until the inauguration. and as you mentioned, not only the debt ceiling but also come march, you will have to figure out how to extend government spending for the rest of the fiscal year. and they don't, the government would shut down. there are major fiscal fights that need to be resolved beyond the immediate fiscal cliff. we are not even talking about the major policies that you are talking about. immigration reform and gun control legislation, those are things that can fall by the wayside if we are consumed by the fiscal talks which seems likely. >> it seems they crawl from one crisis to the next. thank you, sir, we will see you later in the hour. >> thank you. >> president obama will be talking about the fiscal cliff with david
way, shape or form and heard the president say some of the incentives for green energy in place in the stimulus. as well. i'm not sure if i heard you mention the alternative minimum tax for the wealthy and dipped in to the middle class and every year congress has to put it off. what's in this bill is a permanent revocation, a perm inconsistent fix, if you will, of the alternative men mum tax. that's astonishing. almost a trillion dollars cut from the baseline over ten years and appears that would be in the bill but put out the big caution here because nothing is voted on yet. there's no -- the ink is not dry. the signatures not on the document. if there's a deal, it is still not quite there yet. that big fight as we have been describing over those spending cuts, automatic spending cuts over ten years. >> kristen, as you know, the president was on "meet the press" this week. i want to play that and then your reaction. >> obviously, i think business and investors are going to feel more negative about the economy next year. if you look at projections of 2013, people generally felt
much time and energy running forensics on whatever claim, you're exhausted with the topic and you've learned nothing of value. that may be happening again with another high level cabinet post. >> senator graham, final question, can chuck hagel become secretary of defense if he's the president's nominee? >> a lot of republicans asking hard questions, i don't think he's going to get many republican votes. i like chuck, but his positions, i didn't know all of them. are out of the mainstream and well to the left of the president. i think it will be a challenging nomination, the hearings will matter. >> if i were in the senate on the armed services committee, and he was nominated i would have some serious questions to ask him. >> i think senator engle will not be nominated or not be confirmed. the concede in the obama white house was these are republicans. on foreign policy, he's been way to the left of president obama. >>> former nebraska senator chuck hagel has been leaked not nominated leaked as a potential nominee for secretary of defense, and there was already a massive counter of

immigration system, protecting our planet from the harmful effects of climate change, boosting domestic energy production, protecting our kids from the horrors of gun violence. it's not just possible to do these things, it's an obligation to ourselves and to future generations. >> protecting our kids from gun violence. an absolutely critical issue in the light of what happened last month. joining us now is julian epstein a democratic strategist and dana milbank a columnist for "the washington post." the president says addressing gun violence will be a priority. but given what you and i have just witnessed in the congress and a new debt ceiling fight to come in about two months, can we really be optimistic about anything being done to address the issue of gun violence in this country? >> martin, i was up on capitol hill today to watch them wind things down. forget about the fiscal cliff which you point out all they did was punt it for 60 days. >> exactly. >> they can't even agree on -- in the house on enacting the hurricane sandy relief bill which everybody agrees needs to be done. so for us to
